Congratulations to Dirtnapstor, our ninth day winner!
On the tenth day, the question we have for you is "Which character from a video game is your least favorite as far as character designs go and why?"
My answer here might be unpopular overall. And, it's not really just one character, but the overall main characters of the series. But, I'll stick it to the main character of the first game of the series, that being Marcus Fenix.
I've never been a fan of the first game, Gears of War, and I especially disliked the overall character designs. It seemed to glorify a boring 'dude bro' aesthetic I could never get behind, from the arms that were literally wider than his head, to the doo rag styled skull cap, and then they throw him in some plain ole boring armor.
I'm certain the characters grew past the first game, I'm hoping they've grown in design choices (though, a quick search tells me he's just had gotten older and had more facial hair and not much else), but with a game with reasonable potential, Marcus Fenix was one of the worst poster boys of the game for a person like me and I just couldn't get behind him or the other characters who fit the same mold.
